Orange cookies recipe
Orange cookies are a huge hit come Christmas time when everyone is tired of the same plain jane sugar cookies, but they also make a yummy snack at any time of the year, especially if you don’t reside in an area with access to fresh oranges when they’re in season. This recipe is suitable for beginners and expert canna-chefs alike, just don’t forget that they’re powerful, so it’s best to limit yourself and any guests to 1 or 2 cookies each.
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
- Coloured sugar for decoration (optional)
- 3 ounces cream cheese
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup cannabutter (softened)
- ½ cup brown sugar (packed)
- 2 teaspoons orange zest
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Large mixing bowl
- Electric mixer
- Rolling pin
- 1-inch cookie cutters
- Cookie sheet
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Blend the cream cheese, cannabutter, and brown sugar together in a large bowl until the mixture is smooth and fluffy.
Add the orange zest and vanilla extract to the bowl, and then stir the ingredients into the mixture.
Slowly add the flour and salt to the bowl, blending as you go to ensure the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
Flip the cookie dough out onto a clean counter and use a rolling pin to flatten it out.
Use cookie cutters to shape the dough into as many cookies as you can.
Spread the cookies out evenly across 1 or 2 baking sheets.
Sprinkle a generous layer of coloured sugar overtops of the cookies.
Bake the orange cookie shapes in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the outer edges of the cookies start to turn brown.
Remove the cookie sheet from the heat and leave the treats to cool for at least 15 minutes before removing them from the pan. Any sooner, and they’ll be soft, which could result in a whole lot of damage.
Enjoy your orange cookies or store them according to the directions below.
Cookies are one of the best snack foods out there because they can last for up to a week in a simple cookie tin that isn’t even sealed entirely, and that is especially true with sugar cookies, and they’re already dry and crunchy, so a few days’ worth of air exposure isn’t going to do much. However, if you want to keep your cream cheese cookies for even longer, then it’s a good idea to put them in sealed baggies and then into the freezer, where they’ll stay fresh for 3 whole months.
